If Gang of Four had met and reproduced with My Bloody Valentine, and if their super fucked-up kids had been raised on The Beatles and Guided By Voices and had managed to live long enough without killing themselves to make a record, the result might sound a lot like Hotel St. George.

Biography

Living as transplants in San Diego, containing members from across the United States and England, Hotel St. George formed to create a unique blend of influences from British-invasion, Garage, Shoegaze, Pop and Psychedelic Rock. From their first show at a sold-out Casbah to sharing the stage with such acts as Avi Buffalo, White Rabbits, Hockey, The Virgins, Louis XIV, and The Soft Pack the boys of Hotel St. George continue to impress.
Earning three nominations at the San Diego Music Awards, features in several San Diego music publications, and various radio spots have given Hotel St. George a major presence within the San Diego music scene. Outside of San Diego Hotel St George landed support for their first LP release City Boy Lemon with Los Angles based This Is Tightrope, an independent label who pressed 500 vinyl records which completely sold out within months.
Hotel St. George has been featured on BMI's national Indie artists page, repeatedly been covered by Vice Magazine sponsored music blog Grimy Goods, made both Snob Music and Sawkick media blogs list of top albums of 2009 and was awarded a song placement through SPIN magazine on the video game MLB 2k10 alongside such music legends as Pearl Jam, Phoenix, LCD Soundsystem, and Iggy Pop.
New York based music critic Ben Heller describes Hotel St. George's sound as, “If Gang of Four had met and reproduced with My Bloody Valentine, and if their super fucked-up kids had been raised on The Beatles and Guided By Voices and had managed to live long enough without killingthemselves to make a record, the result might sound a lot like Hotel St. George." This along with variety of positive critical acclaim has really driven Hotel St. George to continue to create music and share it with the world. We are excited to release our second LP entitled Funshine Line and to tour throughout the West Coast this spring to support it. It is our strongest production to date and please enjoy listening to some of our favorite tracks on the record.
